Wendy Simonds, Director of Graduate StudiesGerontology is more than an academic subject; it provides a way of understanding ourselves and our families as we move across the life course, and it seeks to explain how our society and the world are being revolutionized by an aging population. We know that the aging process is universal. Gerontology shows us how this process is bounded by our genes, our mind, our culture, and our social networks. It acknowledges the realities that often beset old age, but recognizes that the aging process also is malleable and meaningful. Gerontology provides us with powerful tools for understanding the forces that are fundamentally altering our society as well as how they will shape our own future selves. The Gerontology Institute offers a Master of Arts (M.A.) and a Certificate in Gerontology for students who wish to prepare for careers in the field of aging and focus their graduate studies in the area of gerontology.
